A shocker of a run down hotel with staff that really can't care.
The hotel has an indoor pool at the heart of it. The whole ceiling and walls are painted black so it is never less than gloomy and dingy. Around half the rooms (including ours) faced into this gloomy cavern. This meant the room's windows received no natural light during the day, received permanent fluorescent light at night and there was no natural ventilation.
Also despite having no direct access to the outside word I managed to receive a new set of insect bites every night I stayed there.
At the nearest external door to the hotels was an overflowing bin attracting flies. This wasn't emptied and cleaned up for over three days. For the whole 4 days we stayed there there was a water (I hope) leak from the ceiling of the ground floor. This dripped into the corridor between reception and the rest of the hotel and into the hotel bar.
Which bring us neatly to the hotel bar. Half the seated area was flooded from the leak. The bar stools were 6 inches deep in peanuts shells at opening time. My fiancée and I were the only people in there initially and had a beer as we read up on the local area. A couple of regulars came in and in a few minutes there was loud latino rap music being played that couldn't be talked over. It was obvious that we weren't wanted so we left and never returned.
The hotel also has an attached restaurant, The Huddle House, which is subject to a separate review and where I had the worst BLT and side salad I have ever received.
One of our key cards to the room stopped working. In reprogramming that card they managed to disable the other working card. And when that was reprogrammed the first was disabled. No one on the staff seemed to realise that they needed encoding together.
One day the maid half did the room before going on her break, leaving the room without any towels. I only realised just before I stepped in the shower.
This is the worst hotel in a western country that I have ever been unfortunate enough to stay in.
